DAAD - German Academic Exchange Service
Princeton normally offers two exchange fellowships to DAAD students based upon recommendation from DAAD. One fellowship pays full tuition and required fees only; the second pays full tuition, required fees, and a standard ten-month stipend. Tenure for both of these awards is one academic year, September through June. To apply, please go to the Graduate School Application.
DAAD permits Princeton to nominate two "priority" candidates for the Study Scholarship and/or Research Grant programs. U.S. or Canadian citizens affiliated with colleges or universities in the U.S., in all disciplines, are eligible to apply for 6 to 10 months of support in Germany. You must first secure your department’s nomination and letters of support from appropriate faculty members (Director of Graduate Studies and Advisor), provide three original transcripts each from both undergraduate and graduate institutions, and write a project statement. If there are more than two nominees, the Graduate School’s Fellowship Subcommittee will evaluate candidates and choose the two "priority" nominees. However, the remaining applications may be submitted for the general competition. There are also other grant opportunities offered by DAAD.
A nomination package consists of 1) a formal letter of nomination from the Director of Graduate Studies, 2) a letter of support from the student's advisor, and 3) a two-page summary of student's project statement.
You will be notified if your nomination is accepted and you can proceed with the application.
